Sustainability LEEDs to Inevitable

Well, the results are in. Dartmouth dropped a grade from an A- to a B+in the fourth annual Green Report Card from the Sustainable Endowments Institute. It appears we lost ground in three categories: Endowment Transparency, Investment Priorities and most amusingly, Green Buildings. Our gains in the Administration and Climate Change categories couldn't offset the loss.

This leaves us fifth in the Ivy League in sustainability behind Brown, Harvard, Penn and Yale, and ahead of Cornell, Columbia and Princeton.

To aid the College in its quest to regain its former grade, I hereby pledge to take shorter showers in the dark.
